Redcliff Quarter


Redcliff Square Bristol

One of Bristol’s historic trading quarters, much of which has lain derelict for around 25 years, will be transformed into a bustling new neighbourhood with food court, restaurants, hotel, offices and apartments at its heart. It will be complemented by public realm improvements and a new pedestrian street linking St Thomas Street and Redcliff Street.

In November 2016 we received planning consent from Bristol City Council for this new, vibrant urban destination, that will contribute 400-500 jobs and an estimated £7million per annum into the local economy once completed.

We acquired the 2.5 acre site, which lies in the heart of the Redcliffe conservation area, between St Thomas Street, Redcliff Street and Three Queens Lane, in 2014. It was previously home to underutilised and decaying post-war industrial units.

The key elements of the scheme are:

  • Radisson Red will bring its new dynamic brand to Bristol for the first time with a 185 bed hotel, creating an estimated 90 jobs.
  • A roof-top restaurant will have panoramic views over the city.
  • Ground floor and mezzanine level restaurants and cafés will enhance the Quarter’s character, creating up to 250 jobs.
  • A new European style food hall championing Bristol and South West products and producers.
  • 15,000 sq ft of new office accommodation.
  • 317 new homes.
  • Redcliff Quarter’s central tower is set to become an iconic beacon for inner city regeneration.

The £180 million, 600,000 sq ft development is being brought forward as a joint venture between Change Real Estate, Cannon Family Office and ICG Longbow.

We hope to start construction following archaeological work, by mid 2017.

Phase One

Construction work has started on Phase One of Redcliff Quarter, which will comprise 128 residential units and three/four retail units. The 0.8 acre is within the conservation area at 25 Redcliff Street, 14 and 14a St Thomas Street, where some of the existing façade is retained in our design.

Our planning application for Phase One was submitted to Bristol City Council in November 2014, and consent was granted unanimously April 2015.
